Act Now – Go to IRS.gov – A Message from Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul
Action Needed for Social Security Beneficiaries with Dependents and Who Do Not File Tax Returns to Receive $500 Per Child Payment

Print Version

“Social Security beneficiaries and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who don’t file tax returns will start receiving their automatic Economic Impact Payments directly from the Treasury Department soon. People receiving benefits who did not file 2018 or 2019 taxes, and have qualifying children under age 17, however, should not wait for their automatic $1,200 individual payment. They should immediately go to the IRS’s webpage at www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here and visit the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here section to provide their information. Social Security retirement, survivors, and disability insurance beneficiaries with dependent children and who did not file 2018 or 2019 taxes need to act by Wednesday, April 22, in order to receive additional payments for their eligible children quickly. SSI recipients need to take this action by later this month; a specific date will be available soon.

By taking this proactive step to enter information on the IRS website about them and their qualifying children, they will also receive the $500 per dependent child payment in addition to their $1,200 individual payment. If beneficiaries in this group do not provide their information to the IRS soon, their payment at this time will be $1,200. People would then be required to file a tax year 2020 tax return to obtain the additional $500 per eligible child.

I urge Social Security and SSI recipients with qualifying children who do not normally file taxes to take action now. Immediately go to IRS.gov so that you will receive the full amount of the Economic Impact Payments you and your family are eligible for.

People with Direct Express debit cards who enter information at the IRS’s website should complete all of the mandatory questions, but they may leave the bank account information section blank as Treasury already has their Direct Express information on file.

Additionally, any new beneficiaries since January 1, 2020, of either Social Security or SSI benefits, who did not file a tax return for 2018 or 2019, will also need to go to the IRS’s Non-Filers website to enter their information as they will not receive automatic payments from Treasury.”

Steps to receive the Economic Impact Payment if you haven't filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, and aren't receiving Social Security, SS Disability Income or Railroad Retirement benefits. This payment is also referred to as "stimulus checks" or "coronavirus relief."

Question: I have a daughter who has been disabled by cerebral palsy since birth and has never been able to work. Can she get disability benefits from Social Security?

Answer: Maybe. If the child is under 18 and you have low income and limited resources, the child may be able to qualify for SSI child’s disability benefits. If the child is over 18, she may be able to qualify for SSI disability benefits without regard to the income of her parents. If her father or mother is drawing Social Security benefits of some type or is deceased, the child may be eligible for Disabled Adult Child Benefits.

Social Security Disability Question and Answer.

Question: I am a widow. I have not worked in public work in many years. I am disabled. Can I get Social Security disability benefits?

Answer: If you are over 50 and became disabled within seven years after your husband or wife died or within seven years after you last drew mother’s or father’s benefits from Social Security, you can get Disabled Widow’s or Widower’s Benefits. If you have low income and limited resources, you can draw Supplemental Security Income benefits no matter what age you are when you became disabled.

Social Security Disability Question and Answer:

Question: I am disabled, but I have never worked at public work. Can I get Social Security disability benefits?

Answer: If you have low income and limited resources, you can qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are disabled, even if you have never worked in the past. It is also possible to qualify for Disabled Adult Child Benefits on the account of a parent if you became disabled before age 22 or for Disabled Widow’s or Widower’s Benefits on the account of a late husband or wife.

Social Security Disability Question and Answer:

Question: I know someone who is on Social Security disability and he does not look disabled. Why do they let all of these people who don’t deserve it on disability?

Answer: When it comes to disability, looks can be very deceiving. There are many people who look quite healthy but who are quite disabled.

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: Do I really have to hire a lawyer to represent me in my Social Security disability claim?

Answer: No. You can go through all of the levels of review on your own, if you wish. Statistically, at least from the hearing level on, claimants who are represented by an attorney win more often than those who are not represented.

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: If I get on Social Security disability benefits and get to feeling better and want to return to work, can I return to work?

Answer: Yes. Social Security wants individuals drawing disability benefits to return to work. For persons receiving Disability Insurance Benefits, Disabled Widow’s and Widower’s Benefits, and Disabled Adult Child Benefits, full benefits may continue for a year after an individual returns to work. Even thereafter, an individual who has to stop work in the following three years can get back on Social Security disability benefits immediately without having to file a new claim. In SSI cases, things work differently, but individuals receiving SSI are strongly encouraged to return to work.

Question: Can I appeal a case beyond Social Security to the Federal Courts?

Answer: Yes. After being denied by the Appeals Council, it is possible for a claimant to file a civil action in the United States District Court, requesting review of Social Security’s decision. A Social Security disability claim can go all the way to the Supreme Court. Perhaps once every few years, the United States Supreme Court actually hears an appeal about a Social Security disability case.

02/22/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: What is the Appeals Council?

Answer: The Appeals Council exists to review Administrative Law Judge decisions. The Appeals Council is located in Falls Church, Virginia, and neither the claimant nor the attorney see the people at the Appeals Council who are working on the case.

Question: What are my chances of winning at a hearing?

Answer: Statistically, over half of the claimants who have a Social Security disability heaing win.

02/08/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: What is the Social Security hearing like?

Answer: The hearings are fairly informal. The only people likely to be there are the judge, a secretary operating a recording device, the claimant, the claimant’s attorney, and anyone else the claimant has brought with him or her. In some cases, the Administrative Law Judge has a medical doctor or vocational expert present to testify at the hearing. There is no jury, nor are there any spectators at the hearing. There is no attorney at the hearing representing Social Security trying to get the judge to deny the disability claim.

02/07/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: What are my chances of winning at the reconsideration?

Answer: Statistically in Indiana, only about 1 out of 10 claimants are awarded benefits at the reconsideration level.

02/06/2017

Last Friday the question of the day was, "What is a “reconsideration”?" Today, we are going to tell you who makes the reconsideration determination.

Answer: A disability examiner at the Disability Determination Section makes the reconsideration determination. Most of the time, the claimant does not see the disability examiner.

02/03/2017

Good morning! Here is the Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the day.

Question: What is a "reconsideration"?

Answer: When a claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied at the initial level, the claimant may then request "reconsideration" of that decision.

02/02/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: I only want to get back the money I put in to Social Security. Why do they make it so hard for me to get my own money back?

Answer: When you file a Social Security disability claim, you are not trying to just get “your own money” back. The money you paid in is an insurance premium, not a deposit into a savings account. The money that an individual has paid into Social Security over the years would usually not last very long if that was all that an individual could draw from Social Security.

02/01/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: Why does Social Security turn down so many claims for disability benefits?

Answer: There is no simple answer to this question. One reason is that there is no simple way to determine whether an individual is disabled. Most people who are disabled suffer from pain. There is no way of determining whether or not another individual is in pain, much less how much pain they are in.

01/31/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day:

Question: What do I do if Social Security denies my claim for Social Security disability benefits?

Answer: If you want to appeal, you have only 60 days to do so. If you choose not to appeal but later decide to reapply, you may lose out on some back pay.

01/27/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day:

Question: How far back will they pay benefits if I am found disabled?

Answer: For Disability Insurance Benefits and for Disabled Widow’s and Widower’s Benefits, the benefits cannot begin until five months have passed after the person becomes disabled. In addition, benefits cannot be paid more than one year prior to the date of the claim. For a Disabled Adult Child, there is no five-month waiting period before benefits begin, but benefits cannot be paid more than six months prior to the date of the claim. SSI benefits cannot be paid prior to the start of the month following the date of the claim.

01/25/2017

Social Security Disability Question and Answer of the Day.

Question: If I am approved for Social Security Disability benefits, how much will I get?

Answer: For Disability Insurance Benefits, it all depends upon your age and how much you have worked and earned in the past. For Disabled Widow’s or Widower’s Benefits, it depends upon your age and how much the late husband or wife worked and earned. For Disabled Adult Child Benefits, it depends upon how much the parent worked and earned. For all types of SSI benefits, there is a base amount that an individual with no other income receives. Other income that an individual has reduces the amount of SSI that an individual can receive.
